I don't think there is a real crux on this route. Pretty featured slab climbing up four bolts. Not a spectacular route, but worth doing if you're in the area.


Five feet to the right of Raising Arizona.

Four bolts, two bolt anchor with rings.

100% certain that Brian Brake put this climb up ( bolted it anyway ). Also he did the FA of Pulp Friction, Raising Arizona, Kimberly and Milungian Brotherhood. Give credit where credit is due. He might of done more at this cliff but that's all I know of.
